Auto Tour of Cedar Creek Battlefield

“An Appalling Spectacle of Panic”: In-depth Auto Tour of Cedar Creek Battlefield – 4 hour tour
Park Ranger Jeff Driscoll leads a four-hour auto tour that will take visitors to spots on the battlefield most never see. The tour includes often-visited stops like Thoburn’s Redoubt and Mount Carmel cemetery, but also little-seen places like Bowman’s Mill Ford, Red Hill, and Rienzi Knoll. Two stops on this tour are a short walk from parking to the gathering place. The ranger will provide maps and directions to the first stop, Bowman’s Mill Ford.
Things to Know Before Participating
For both traffic and pandemic safety, attendance will be limited to the first 25 visitors. All tour stops are outdoors. Masks are not required, but the NPS asks that parties keep at least six feet distant from the ranger and others.
Visitors follow the ranger in their own cars to stops along the tour. The ranger cannot provide transportation. Part of the battlefield tour is along rural dirt and gravel roads.
The length of the tour depends in part on the number of participants’ cars but includes transit time and time for everyone to arrive, park, and gather at each stop.
